Old 8 mm, 16mm or 9.5 mm films can be transfered to video for ease of viewing. Transfering your old film reels to DVD preserves your memories without loss of quality or the fear of the film being damaged. DVD’s take up less space and last much longer than old film reels.

No more need for projectors and deteriorating film.

We use a Telecine system which prevents the image from flickering, which is a common problem when transferring with the wrong equipment. Since film and video have a different number of frames per second, it is very important to adjust to this. It is also important not to project the image onto a screen and pick up the image with a camera because this decreases the quality drastically.

Film transfer pricing is calculated by the foot. Discount available for large quantities.

Background music may be added to silent films.
